MARCO POLO Thailand immerses you in a realm made for holidaymakers. It has you exploring the boomtown of Bangkok and discovering a culture rooted in Buddhism; it entices you to the top of Thailand’s highest mountain and leads you across the broad plateau of the northeast. The Insider Tips tell you on which southern islands you can still find peaceful bays and where you can learn to ride an elephant.
The Best Of pages point out what’s typical of Thailand, recommend things to do for free, have tips for rainy days and for where you can relax and unwind. You’ll find out What’s Hot in Thailand, whether decadently sweet deserts or the action-packed ball game of Sepak Takraw.
The Perfect Route takes you to the mountains of the north, island hopping in the Andaman Sea and to the largest area of virgin jungle in Southern Thailand. The Where to Start boxes help you get your bearings in the larger towns and cities, while the Dos & Don’ts tell you why you should neither get involved with touts nor involved in an argument.
MARCO POLO Thailand provides comprehensive coverage of the country. To help you get around there’s a detailed road atlas inside, a useful folding street map of Bangkok in the backcover, plus a handy pull-out map.
